The history of the creation of the zoo in Qingdao dates back to the distant 1915, when several aviaries were installed on the territory of Zhongshan Park, where wild animals were placed. Subsequently, the zoo gradually expanded, and in 1977 was moved to a new place in the area of the Victoria Upland. Currently, the zoo is considered one of the largest in China and occupies a vast territory with several thematic zones.
The management of the zoo makes every effort to create comfortable conditions for all types of animals and birds brought from different countries. Therefore, it was decided to create free enclosures for predators so that animals feel safe and in the natural environment. The pride of the zoo is the red panda, leopards, gorilla, Chinese badger, a large number of reptiles, as well as representatives of primates.
The territory of the zoo is ennobled and looks well-groomed: paved paths, arched bridges, small ponds with blooming lotuses, food zones, original floral arrangements, convenient travel patterns in Chinese and English - all this can be seen when visiting the attraction. As an additional program, tourists are invited to watch a show program with the participation of tigers and lions, feed the red carps that live in the pond, take pictures with monkeys or take a horse ride. You can move around the zoo both on foot and on comfortable trains that stop near each aviary.
Attractions Qingdao Zoo
A sufficient number of animals live in the zoo. Each of the inhabitants lives in its own biological time. First of all, you should look at the awake lions and tigers before they leave for "quiet time".
The zoo is home to many rare species of animals. For example, Chinese badger, Red panda. There is also a large house of primates, chimpanzees and a terrarium.
But still, the house with monkeys can rightfully be called the funniest place in any zoo. Both adults and children are always interested in observing their “relatives”. And, maybe, it will be possible to compete with them in the ability to build funny faces. The habits of monkeys are somewhat similar to human ones. These animals also look after each other, their cubs. The whole area is covered with small and not very ponds, ponds with clear water, through which red carps can be seen. Raccoons, leopards, porcupines live in enclosures. It is allowed to feed some animals: club-footed bear, goats, guinea pigs.
Paths are laid all around the zoo, around which exotic and not so trees, shrubs, and huge flower beds grow. You can also enjoy the smallest and older visitors with sugary drinks and other goodies.
But, of course, the most interesting for visitors, after the animals of the zoo and birds, in the zoo, are lakes and ponds, with floating water lilies and lotuses, in which vocalized frogs hide.
Opening hours: the park is open from 8am to 6pm.
Ticket price: adult 60 yuan, children 30 yuan.
